Steal This Post

The Washington Post's new racist Republican blogger exhibits many of the traits that characterize Republicans. For example, he's a thief! He's plagiarized work from many other publications in his illustrious "journalist", blogger and college journalist past.

So far (and the hits just keep on coming) it has been determined that (as Atrios hilariously calls him) Box Turtle Ben stole and republished the work of

P.J. O'Rourke

Stephanie Zacharek of

Steve Rhodes of IMDB (the Internet Movie DataBase)

Mary Elizabeth Williams of

Cox News Service

Liz Braun at (stealing from a Christian website! Who'da thunk it?)



Edward Walsh and Roberto Suro of the Washington Post

Ben, if you can't think of anything to post on the Post tomorrow, you can steal this post.

When I wake up in the morning, will the racist word-thief have a job? Normally plagiarism is a line real journalists aren't allowed to cross, but Ben's not really a journalist, and the WashingtonPostonline doesn't seem to be populated by any journalists. So the forecast for tomorrow is Ben keeps his job. Let's hope I'm wrong and Jim Brady is burning the midnight oil, sweating buckets over his latest gaffe.
